In light of the recent federal government shutdown, we wanted to reach out and assure you that the shutdown does not impact the processing of Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) certifications. First Advantage has, through our ongoing work with state processing coordinators, confirmed that states are, and will continue to, accept, process, and issue certifications.

The U.S. Postal Service is also not interrupted or impacted, and state governments are not impacted by the federal-level shutdown. First Advantage will continue to process and mail Forms 8850 to our state agency contacts who are similarly processing certifications as usual.

Although the federal government shutdown will have no impact on the WOTC program, First Advantage is continually monitoring the legislative, regulatory, and logistical landscape for WOTC, and will keep you informed of any additional news. If you have any questions on the shutdown, WOTC, or other tax credit programs, please contact your First Advantage Tax Account Manager or your legal counsel.
